WINTER SPORTS -- Beautiful cross-country skiing tracks have been groomed into the Ferry County Rail Trail along the Kettle River today.
 
Retired Forest Service recreation specialist Keith Wakefield used a snowmobile to groom the trails today, supported by donations by members of the Ferry County Rail Trail Partners.
 
The group will sponsor a Rail Trail Ski Day in Curlew on Jan. 12, featuring free use of nordic ski gear and free ski lessons for beginners.
